Weight: 3.0 g
Diameter: 14-15 mm

Thank you so much in advance for your help...!!!  =))

Dear mti, second coin turned 90 degrees:
Umayyads, Marwan II, around 130 AH (no year), Copper Fals, Baalabek (Heliopolis Lebanon) mint (AH 127-132/744-750 AD).
First photo: Inside circle first part of the Shahada and mint.
لا اله \ الا الله \ بعلبك  , La Ilah / Illa Allah / Baalabak
Second photo: Inside circle:
محمد \ رسول \ الله  , Muhammad Rasul Allah.
Marwan ibn Muhammad ibn Marwan ibn al-Hakam (مروان بن محمد بن مروان بن الحكم‎), also called Marwan II, was the fourteenth and last caliph of the Umayyad Caliphate, ruling from 744 until he was killed in 750 AD.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
